    Hi All,

    Would anyone happen to have a few detail photos of an '86 set of 49 State VF500F Keihin carburetors (VD31A series) showing the two fuel line connections?

    Many thanks!

    The lines basically go from there to the plastic fuel passage tubes between the carbs. The tubes have t-joints to accept the hose where the 84-85 is just a straight tube between carbs.

    So unlike the 84-85 carbs where the fuel enters at the end of the carb bank the fuel in the 86 enters in a more distributed fashion. Easy to theorize why they made the change, but was there really a problem of the farthest carb on the 84-85's being slightly starved? Who knows...
